  • Riders of the Purple Sage

    By I'm tired of trying names
    A good read. Plenty of surprises towards the end. Pay attention to what you read. It might mean something later on.
  • Good ole book.

    Nice story. Brings up interesting Mormon history.

    I am a retired teacher of both English and History. This book makes me wonder how he ever sold anything he wrote. His attention to detail is miserable as noticed when one burro was taken from the ranch and then suddenly, in the middle of nowhere, having two. His description of the sunrise bathing the face of the eastern cliffs shows his lack of knowledge of things solar. His knowledge of Utah geography is minimal at best. In today’s climate of inclusion and diversity his irrational and misplaced hatred toward “Mormons” is very objectionable. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Lynn Kenley

    I read this book as a teenager. It was one of my favorites. 30 years later to read it again. I remembered everything. Almost every detail. I feel the same thrill when Jane says"roll the stone". Zane Grey loves words. But even though nobody talks like this now and probably never did. It is beautiful to read.
  • A seminal work.

    By Ain't fishin' 99
    This is a work that educates us to the level of literacy of the common man of 100 years ago. Writing with abandon and no apology Zane Grey proceeds to tell a story, like the great symphonies of the nineteenth century (of which he was). He coaxes you in and along, and through poetic scenes of pastoral tranquility, the magnificent Utah landscape, and the hard edged violent nature of those who saw it from the back of a great mount. A great romantic adventure. The true beginning of a wonderful genre.
